Palm reveals 5 new devices in webOS 2.0 code
We were all a little hesitant about HP's acquisition of Palm. Would they change the iconic Palm devices we'd come to love? Would they change webOS for the worse? Our fears have obviously been allayed by the news about the upcoming Palm Pre 2, which should be available for pre-order tomorrow.

WebOS Internals has poured over the webOS 2.0 build from SFR (a French mobile company). They uncovered 5 new codenames for upcoming devices: Broadway, Windsor, Stingray, Mantaray, and Roadrunner. You've already heard the Roadrunner moniker before, which is reportedly the first touchscreen-only device from Palm.

If we had to guess, the Stingray is probably the all-touch device, as the animal is smooth and flat. It would also follow that the Mantaray is the name of their upcoming tablet. We can't venture a guess for the others, but Palm fans are thrilled either way. While we loved the Pre and the Pixi, we've been eager for more variety in the Palm lineup.

The Pre 2, available only from Verizon Wireless (at least for now), is expected to launch within the next few days. The first webOS 2.0 collaboration between HP and Palm will showcase a 1GHz processor, a 3.1-inch HVGA Gorilla Glass display, and a 5 megapixel camera (up from 3MP).

Atleast a launch from palm on verizon won't be botched like the one on sprint.

I guess you missed Verizon's botching of the original Pre's release and sales. That's why they decided to include the hotspot for free. They know the f'd up the pre.

Umm Sprint's wack ass marketing killed the pre, so it was pretty much doa by the time it arrived at verizon. The free hotspot was to move all those touchscreen carcasses.

I do love my Sprint service but their marketing is terrible, and that definitely hurt the Pre.

Hmmm..... Their marketing must have worked since you are a customer, As a consumer do you really care if a company has good marketing?? If you are buying a good or service from a company their Marketing is obviously reaching you. Your comment is lame. Also, what hurt the pre was palms lack of money for proper r&d and they required Sprint to sign off on the device to eat all warranty costs since their broke ass company could stay afloat and not have to do the continuous replacements of shit hardware.

I can't wait till they release images of the devices!!! Better yet, I can't wait till they start selling them!
